To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I found this book to be a brilliant, masterful collection of poems that are alive and breathing. They smile, cough, sigh, and cock their heads with a gentle humanity that is wide awake, feeling its own reflection in the natural world. These poems dance and sing, but there is also the burn, the moan—the fear and loneliness of consciousness.
I was completely engaged on every page, reminded of the mystery and sheer ecstasy of existence, however brief it might be for the lady with the margarita (“Midnight, March”), the short-horned lizard (“Phrynosoma Douglassii”), and all the rest of us.
